Setting Out:

Depending on your progress in the story, characters you have yet to recruit may appear in these events.

  • Ciaran: So this is a different world from the one we live in?
  • Materia: That is correct.
  • Materia: And I wish for you to fight as one of my warriors.
  • Ciaran: Fight? But I already have work to do...
  • Materia: You possess a strong will.
  • Materia: You held fast to your memories on your long journey. We need that will.
  • Ciaran: There are lots of strong people out there. Does it have to be me?
  • Materia: ...The crystal guided you to me.
  • Ciaran: The crystal...?
  • Materia: A different one from that in your world. It is one that wishes for the warriors' respite.
  • Materia: We, the gods, created this world as a land of respite...
  • Materia: It was once a place where battle-weary warriors from other worlds could rest.
  • Materia: I took away their tragic memories to give them peace of mind.
  • Ciaran: You took away...their memories?
  • Materia: I once thought depriving them of such painful memories would bring them tranquility.
  • Materia: But reality was different. They now seek those lost memories.
  • Materia: They claim that, no matter how painful those memories are, they are what strengthen their wills.
  • Ciaran: ...I feel the same way. You were mistaken, Materia.
  • Materia: I couldn't understand... But I regret what I did.
  • Ciaran: You can't hold on to all of your memories. Some spill out here and there.
  • Ciaran: But having them stolen is...sad.
  • Materia: This world is no longer one of respite. It is being threatened by monsters and those harboring ill will.
  • Materia: Please, lend us your strength.
  • Materia: Your journey has been unlike the others.
  • Materia: Those experiences will be a new guiding light to my warriors.
  • Ciaran: Alright. I'll give it my best shot.
  • Ciaran: I'm nothing like those heroes that appear in tales, so there might not be much that I can do...
  • Ciaran: But this is a journey of hope for the future?
  • Ciaran: If that's what they're traveling for, then I hope I can help them.
Pleasant Meetings:
  • Mog: Kupo! I sense a new friend over that way!
  • Ciaran: Hey there!

(Ciaran arrives)

  • Ciaran: Thanks for finding me. I thought I was lost.
  • Warrior of Light: Are you one of Materia's warriors, too?
  • Ciaran: Seems that way.
  • Ciaran: My name's Ciaran. Materia told me to come here.
  • Yuri: Hey, Chelinka. He looks like a Clavat, doesn't he?
  • Chelinka: I think you're right, Yuri.
  • Layle: So we're the same tribe. He doesn't look like a bad guy to me.
  • Rem: A friend of yours?
  • Yuri: No. But he might come from a similar world to ours.
  • Layle: Just like me and these twins here. Our worlds have some tribes in common.
  • Ciaran: So you're also Clavats. What a relief... I thought I'd be the only one.
  • Yuri: Maybe from our past or our future...somewhere in the infinite possibilities, no doubt you're out there somewhere.
  • Rem: Just hearing "Clavats" is enough to put your mind at ease?
  • Chelinka: As the tribes go, Clavats are said to have very peaceful temperaments.
  • Yuri: We're often called the tribe of unity and friendship.
  • Sazh: No kidding. That apply to you, too?
  • Layle: Can't say. I'm just one Clavat.
  • Layle: There are plenty of argumentative ones, short-tempered ones...
  • Yuri: Right. Rather than focusing on tribes, it's more important to look at the way we each live our lives.
  • Chelinka: There are bad Clavats out there, and lots of kind and warmhearted people from other tribes.
  • Layle: Exactly. And you can usually tell just by looking if a Clavat is up to no good. And he doesn't look it at all.
  • Yuri: If anything, he's got good-guy vibes just gushing outta everywhere!
  • Chelinka: I know what you want to say, Yuri, but pick your words better...
  • Warrior of Light: Very well. We believe you. Let us fight together to save the future.
  • Ciaran: Oh, um... Gotcha, so it is that kind of journey.
  • Ciaran: It might be some time until I get the hang of things. I'll take it slow for now.
  • Sazh: Easy-going fella.
  • Rem: Hehe. But it's good to have someone like that around.
  • Warrior of Light: Indeed. I can tell that there is a comforting warmth about you.
  • Layle: You seem pretty skilled. You must have plenty of experience under your belt.
  • Ciaran: I don't know... I've spent some time on the road, but I don't know if that makes me "skilled."
  • Ciaran: Still, I'll do what I can. It's a pleasure to meet you all.
  • Yuri: Great! Welcome to the team!
  • Sazh: I can't believe Materia's dragging more kids into this fight.
  • Layle: Kid? He's older than me.
  • Sazh: Wh-what!?
  • Sazh: Geez, my bad. I thought I could tell, but I guess it's different in other worlds.
  • Ciaran: Don't worry about it. There are lots of things I don't understand, either.
  • Ciaran: I hope you'll all take your time telling me about yourselves, too.
  • Cecil: What did you hear from Materia, Ciaran?
  • Ciaran: Why do you ask?
  • Cecil: We are warriors that were summoned by Materia, but we no longer move according to her orders.
  • Cecil: Her way of thinking and ours are somewhat different, so we want to know what's on her mind.
  • Ciaran: I heard that you're confronting the memories that you lost.
  • Tidus: We forgot a lot of important things, so we're trying to get them back.
  • Ace: ...Those who've forgotten can't even discern what they've lost.
  • Ashe: ...Yes. I...may not have all my memories either.
  • Vivi: It's sad to think of forgetting something, so we're taking our memories back little by little.
  • Ciaran: I see... Hmm...
  • Ciaran: It seemed like a part of Materia was afraid of you facing your memories.
  • Ciaran: She seemed unsure if losing them was a bad thing, or if those painful memories would weigh you down too much.
  • Ciaran: I think I was chosen because of that.
  • Vivi: Really? Why?
  • Ciaran: There were beings in my world who ate memories.
  • Tidus: Ate memories!? That's terrible...
  • Ciaran: ...But people eventually forget things, don't they?
  • Ciaran: They would feed off of people's fading memories as part of the world's natural cycle.
  • Ciaran: One lost control and spread a lot of unhappiness, but forgetting is part of life.
  • Ciaran: You can't hold onto every single memory. It's natural to forget things.
  • Ace: You mean that memories can sometimes be a burden...
  • Ciaran: One of those beings taught me that memories are like a pack we carry into the future.
  • Ciaran: If it becomes too heavy, it can weigh you down.
  • Ciaran: If it's too light, your journey will end before you've gained anything.
  • Ciaran: A traveler's journey into the future nurtures his or her heart, and becomes a source of new life.
  • Ashe: Memories can be a burden... I wonder if that is the case for me...
  • Cecil: There may come a day when I can also think that way, that it's natural to forget some things...
  • Ace: ...We believe that forgetting is a divine blessing. That for everyone else, memories are something they dwell on trying not to forget.
  • Ciaran: I heard a bit about your world and your crystal...
  • Ciaran: But I can't give you answers. What's right probably depends on the world you're in.
  • Ciaran: But if you feel warmth from your memories, I think you should cherish them.
  • Ciaran: Even if you forget a lot of things, having warm memories close to your heart is what makes a journey wonderful.
  • Ace: Warm memories...close to my heart...
  • Ace: I see... Even if the future is uncertain, they'll light the way.
  • Ciaran: No matter what memories you have, you're on a journey with hope for the future, right?
  • Cecil: Right. Without getting caught up in the past...we believe that there is light in the future.
  • Ciaran: Then what's say we get a move on?
  • Ciaran: Even if the light is faint, you'll reach your destination as long as you keep going forward.
